Slippery Rock University’s Storm Harbor Equestrian Center has received a $1,000 grant from the Pennsylvania National Horse Show Foundation to support its services.
“The money we received will help with scholarships to ensure that riders with disabilities who have financial hardships will be able to continue riding,” said Courtney Gramlich, Storm Harbor director, who applied for the grant.
Storm Harbor provides learning opportunities for SRU students and equine-assisted riding therapy for adults and children with disabilities.
“The Pennsylvania National Horse Show Foundation is proud to be able to support deserving organizations that make a difference in the lives of special needs children and provide much needed care for neglected and abandoned horses,” said Liz Shorb, president.
The foundation, established in 1999, is a non-profit organization supporting programs that focus on education and training of those involved in equestrian programs.
Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania's premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
